Learn to Teach Yoga to Young Children:

A Comprehensive Guide for Early Childhood Educators

 

$499.00

 

This unique training is designed specifically for Early Childhood Educators and other Early Years Professionals.

In this course you will learn...

MODULE ONE

All About Yoga: How to Help Small People Calm Big Emotions

Big emotions, poor self-regulation and increased levels of stress are just some of the challenges educators face when working with young children. In this module we will examine how yoga can help. Whether you are a newbie to yoga or have been practicing for some time, we will start with the basics and build from there.

MODULE TWO

Managing Restlessness: Tuning-in & Finding Control

Do you find your children have difficulty settling themselves and sometimes have too much energy? Are your children restless and anxious sometimes? In this module you will learn techniques to help children tune into their bodies and learn how to calm themselves.

MODULE THREE

Managing Challenging Behaviours: Yoga Techniques That Help

Do your children demonstrate difficult or challenging behaviours? Do you struggle with keeping them focused and on task? In this module you will learn how to build specific practices into your early childhood setting to develop listening skills, increase focus and sharpen concentration skills.

MODULE FOUR

Bringing More Cooperation and Kindness into Your Classroom

Do your children exhibit careless or thoughtless behaviour? Would you like to see more cooperation and compassion expressed by the children you teach? In this module you will learn teaching strategies that invite children to experience and express gratitude and kindness toward themselves and others. 

MODULE FIVE

Calm the Chaos During Routines & Transitions

Moving children through a busy schedule can be crazy sometimes. Noise and disruptions can be stressful on everyone. Learn techniques that help busy transitions & routines run smoother. Learn practical ways of building specific activities into your daily schedule to help calm the chaos.

MODULE SIX

Settling Over-Active Bodies and Using Excess Energy

Overstimulated and overactive little bodies can be very disruptive. Aimless and purposeless wandering about can leave teachers and children frustrated. Learn yoga postures and sequences that harness excess energy and teach intentional healthy movement. Learn poses and postures to increase body awareness, strengthen balance and develop coordination, all in a fun-filled child-friendly way!

MODULE SEVEN

Finding Quiet in a Busy World

Does a calm and peaceful playroom seem illusive from time to time? Would you like to bring more mindfulness into your early learning space? In this module you will learn simple, age appropriate meditations and mindfulness practices that allow your children to find and feel peace in their bodies, minds and hearts.

MODULE EIGHT

Creating and Committing to a Realistic Teaching Plan

Let's put it all together in a way that makes sense. Let's make a meaningful plan. In this final module you will be guided through a process to help visualize and build yoga into the work you do. Learn how to create a practical, functional and totally do-able plan for your specific, unique situation.

This was an amazing experience. Learned so much but especially how to bring yoga into everyday life not just yoga classes. Games, songs, meditation stories. Absolutely recommend it to those working with children...Laura showed us how to use resources we had and where to find other resources.

Laura was excellent, her curriculum was enlightening and engaging, the environment was lovely and comfortable, and I came away being able to readily develop multiple creative and age-appropriate yoga practices for the children with whom I work. 

- Heidi -

Thank you for putting on an amazing training session.  I really enjoyed this training. I loved learning how to properly teach yoga to the children in different ways. I really liked how it related to my own life and the lives of the children as well.
